Here's my little Twilight Story (the short version of course, couldn't we all go on and on and on about Twilight).......
What's your little Twilight story???
My little Twilight Story.....
A friend of mine had been trying to get me to read the books. I didn't
think I'd like them. I'm 34 and because the books are in the "teen" or
"young adult" section I didn't think it would keep my attention. I was
so wrong. I had surgery on my neck last year (titanium plates now hold
my neck together - don't ask - long yucky story) so while I had a month
of being off work to kill I started reading the books. Since I was
sleeping a lot and stuff it took me all month to read the four books,
and it really changed me. Believe me, at 34 I was so jaded I never
would of thought there'd be any way these books would phase me the way
it has. It was so refreshing to read a story that sparked so much hope.
Within these books, the story, the characters was a huge reminder of
the true meanings of love and loyalty and friendship and family....all
forms of what family means.
I remember that the last week I was home I was in the middle of BD and
I had to start venturing out into the world. So I went to see my
family/friends and to the store, etc. I hated putting down the book. As
I told my boyfriend at the time (now my husband) "When I put down this
book I feel like all my friends are in there waiting for me to come out
and play". That was how I felt. But the street lights come on (for
those of you old enough to know what I mean by that) and you have to
leave make-believe behind for a little while. I got through my recovery
fine, back to work, got married to my best friend, have wonderful
friends and family.......but almost every day, just for a little while,
weather it's coming to this website or re-reading the books (which I'm
in a slow constant flux of doing all the time) I get to visit my
friends in Forks in make-believe world for a little while.
